The first time I had “green garden gazpacho” was at Superba in Venice. Made of asparagus, peas, cucumber, yogurt, olive oil. How Chef Jason Neroni made this recipe exactly I could only guess by taste. The yogurt was spooned artfully into a wide bowl, a pillow on top of the verdant green purée, surrounded by a wreath of delicate edible flowers in white and yellow, a sprig of asparagus, with a voluptuous drizzle of olive oil dappled upon its velvety surface.
